After eight weeks, CBS finally broke its Tuesday tie with NBC, winning last night in all measures.
'NCIS' matched last week's 3.0. 'NCIS: LA' bumped up a tenth to a 2.5. Despite rampant advertising, and a shocking twist, 'Person of Interest' stayed flat with last week's 2.0. 'The Biggest Loser' rose slightly for NBC, posting a 1.9. 'The Voice' dropped two tenths to a 3.2, a new low for a Tuesday fall broadcast. Bad news for 'Chicago Fire;' the sophomore drama fell three tenths to a season low of 1.9. I'm pretty sure that doesn't bode well for 'Chicago P.D.'s chances next year.
'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' rose two tenths to a 2.4 for ABC, its first week to week increase of the season. Lead-out 'The Goldbergs' dropped a tenth to a 1.6. The 90 minute special 'David Blaine: Real or Magic' earned a very healthy 2.6.
'Dads' and 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' only managed to rise one tenth above last week's series lows. 'New Girl' matched last week's series low. 'The Mindy Project' dipped two tenths, tying its own series low. FOX Tuesdays: At least we're not doing as bad as NBC Thursdays. A Lady Gaga special did a mere 0.3 for the CW, which is about a third of what 'The Originals' earned last week. The underwhelming lead-in clearly hurt 'Supernatural,' which fell two tenths to a 0.9.
